Trains Are In!

Thank you for all the kind and encouraging comments about my Art Journal.  I'm looking forward to doing the next page hopefully this weekend.  Jessica and Ursula you guys had a great insight of what was going on in my head!  LOL  Both of you have a piece of what was happening at the time.

I'm excited to know that "Trains" are in.  Well, I'm declaring they are "IN" again.

My husband has this thing about trains during Christmas.  This year he pulls out his older train set to play with the grandchildren.  They were fascinated, especially Little. It's a photo moment.

I pulled out an older line of Graphic 45, Playtimes Past.  I only had scraps left of the train sheet so I used it to make my bannr and little blue train popping out of the photos.

Fiskars has a new stamp called "Choo Choo."  I stamped on a piece of G45 paper, embossed, cut it out, and popped it up.

The journaling area is another piece of the same collection cut with Tim Holtz Alteration Ticket Strip.

This is why Trains are "in" this year:  Fiskars has their "Choo, Choo"

and Tim has a new stamp coming out this CHA called "on the railroad."
and Graphic 45's Collection never go out of style!
All Aboard!  Trains are IN!
